Post Fastest Guitarist According To the Guinness Book Of Records
I thought this video was sped up, but apparently it's not and this guy's performance was verified live by the Guinness Book of World Records.

Interesting note... if you wish to make an attempt to break this record, you'll have to learn The Flight of the Bumblebee. According to the article... "The fastest-guitarist record used to be based on the simpler criterion of notes played per second, but Guinness officials lost patience with wannabes trilling away on a single note, so they changed the standard to “Bumblebee” a few years ago".

Needless to say, this guy is playing The Flight of the Bumblebee so fast that it just sounds like noise. The Guinness judges had to slow it down to verify it...

If you watch his hair it seems to act at a natural speed. Anyways, that was kind of terrifying, I don't think anyone's going to be breaking that one any time soon.

Well...... We're all doomed then. :lol: *quickly passes baton to someone else*

Never seen the guy before. I can only hope that when he's not playing 'bumblebee', he might sound pretty good. :|
I'll look for him next time I go to the local music stores, then report back! :D
